Ex-Pakistan cricketer Khalid Latif gets 12 years for inciting murder of Dutch MP

  • Former Pakistan international cricketer Khalid Latif has been sentenced to 12 years in prison in the Netherlands for calling for the murder of anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders. Latif offered a reward of 21,000 euros for the head of Wilders in an online video after the lawmaker planned a competition for cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
  • Latif, who was convicted in absentia, is unlikely to serve his sentence as Dutch authorities have been unable to question him and Pakistan has refused to cooperate. Wilders expressed satisfaction with the verdict but called for the arrest and extradition of Latif. Wilders canceled the cartoon contest due to protests and death threats.
  • The court stated that Latif's video not only attacked Wilders personally, but also the concept of free speech in the Netherlands. Latif, a former international cricketer, used his fame to "add oil to the fire" during a period of existing threats against the Netherlands.
